Toldier, who fired a fieldpiece at the Austrians before Brod.

wai rather in the gui of a private
in the "Battalion of Life". Home one
declared after hearing her leeture that
thU was certainly not a Bath-lew war.
It ha been uiil that ulie know every
body and that everybody know her

and other parts of the world. It must

In private life ahe U Mra. Charles II.
Farnam and ahe tulla ua her real age
in forty-four. Born in a aleepy Long
Inlaid town, ahe married and went to
Kngland, where her huaband had tt
teniv bnaineaa intreata. At hia
death, ahe nettled down in a magnillcent
country estate to .liV a peaceful ure,
with all the comfort that a ennaider
albe fortune ran command.
In Balkan War
A aocial call on a friend in Belgrade
Huddenly i-hanged all her ideas on life.
This waa during the Bulgarian war,
and the Merbian ollier came back by
the thousands to suffer and to die. Then
and yiere this lady of culture and re
Hnemeut ahowed the stuff of which
.Vmerirnn women are made. Hhe jump
ed J-ight into hospital work without
previous training, and toiled over those
wm-tm-n Uidies. When she went back
hone, she carried with her a lasting
loje ind respect for the game Herbian
Aa American at heurt, she fretted at
o.u Itftig continued neutrality in the
p'reaenf' war. She decided, however, to
her bit, and sold her lovely estate
to help Herbia. Then she went out there
to serve personally. She was in the
tyiditt epidemic, and wherever "li4e
there wns anything going on;, then
bark to America she came and raised
enormous sums by lecturing for the
refuses; then again to Macedonia to
supervise the exteusive task of distrib
titin(J the relief supplioa.
Arrested aa Spy
In- lUlv she was arrested as u spy.
In these troublesome days it is natural
to look with suspicion on u woman of
uiiipustioniible personal charm, travel
ing nlrtlie. She tells us nn amusing story
in connection with this arrest. The
weight of her credentials carried the
day? and tliey allowed her to go after n
thorough iwrsoiial examination. "Think
ing It wise." she relates, "to show
how dignified I could be under adverse
circumstances, 1 sailed out with head
,..h. smiling, but with a hot red spot
on either cheek, oulv to be followed
,v a ronr of laughter. On reaching
my .ompartmeut, I found that the de
sired effect had been rather dashed by
th fact that a vard or two of pink rib
bon trailed behind me from a forgot
ten bow, and this had in soma way be
none entangled with a greasy paper
W, ho that my haughty progress opt
have resembled that of an indignant
kite." This is the woman of it.
On Battlefront
When the Allies made their plans to
re enter Serbia in 1910, she was the
.first woman to enter reconquered Her
hlarr territory. She went up to tho
front lines, was extended an invitation
to yinit the Headquarters Observntion
l'ctst-in No Man 'a Land, and later fired
the ffsf shot for the eonimeneement of
the hattle of Brod, which eontinued
for flv weeks, till thi Allies reached
Mona4fi. where they stand today.
Krgeiiii Farnam writes: "In the name
of American womanhood, I gave the
"BnnX'w"i, n ne11 raring over
the valley to fail into the Bulgarian
trenches and as the awful fountain of
dust and 61,,M' uml fragments spouted
into the uir, I shouted: 'The women of
America avenge Serbian women by my

in-chief. "Moke me one," snapped

grams coming from various parts of
Hunsia. It is reported thnt I.enine and

Accounts contained in recently re

Great Things Expected By In

INtil.A.N'D, July 2S (Associated
Press i Another consignment of Amer
icsn man power that might be labelled
" Mad in England " ia ready for ship
ment to tke WVateri front. It. is the
personnel of the first American tank
Trained by veterans of the British
tnnk service, and equipped with the
most modern of the land warships, the
new force is expected to gWe an excel
lent account of itself. Th British
coaches of tbe American erews have
expressed their approval of the manner
in which their pupils have adapted
themselves to the operation of the ma
chines and, unless they aer mistaken,
the man whose training in England is
just being completed will lie given en
viable poles. Their machine have
the best points of both the British and
French tanks and the training of the
men has been in tbe light of experi
ences already, gained by the fighters of
France and England.
Laarn of Mistakes
To every man ia the American out
lit there have been imparted tbe stories
of mistakes made la tbe early history
of tnnk warfare. Enlisted men and
officers have been told what to da and
what not to do; all their admonitions
have been baaed not on theory but on
actual experiences, gained ia- the face
of German lire, loosed always upon the
slightest Intimation that tbe tanks are
lumbering to the front.
But as a reminder, perhapa, that
the enemy's fire is seldom effective is
the insignia adopted for tba .Amen
can tank corps two salamanders,
crawling creatures that worm their way
unharmed through the flame and smoke.
It i expeeter that because or tne tx-
rellenee of the'wenpoa with which it
will fight and the training it has un
dergone the American contingent will
prove ItaeUP exceptionally efficient; for,
eveu ai the American engineers have
been careful to combine in the Ameri
can tank the best features of those now
used bv the British aud the French,
so have the Instructors of the person
nel been aerupuloualy careful to in
culcate the most advantageous methods
of offence and defence.
All Picked Man
Further cause for belitving the Am
eriran tank corps will live up to the
estimate of the British instructors i
the character of its personnel, both
men and officers. They are carefully
selected men, picked from tbe tho.i
sands who volunteered when the cal'
for tank men was made. Two base
requisites were insisted upon: first, ev
cry man must be physically fit, and
second, trmpcrmantally adaptable. Tin
training every man has received ha
meant either that he is delivered to thi
commanders at the front as a wonder
fully efficient unit or is mercilessl'
thrown out of the service. He is turn
ed over to the fighting force as ni
expert mechanic, a man drilled in tin
operation of both machine guns am1
heavier ordnance, a tactician and strat
egist, and, finnlly, as a man with no
evidence of "nerves".
British trainers at the little country
town where tht Americans have beer
coached have been careful to explair
to the men, as tbey weeded out the un
fit ami those not tenipcrmantally auit
able, that only the beat can be used
There is perhaps no branch of the army
service that makes a greater damanr
on the physical endurance of the man
than the tank service, and certainly
none calculated to teat the nerves more
for within the very small fightinr
space there is .combined the roar o'
the heavy ordnance, the rattle of thr
machine gnus, the acrid smell of bum
ing powder, and the suffocating fumei
of burning oil ami gasoline. Into thi
little space, not more than eight feel
long, and four or fire wide and witl
a ceiling so low that a man canno'
stand upright, there is crowded th
Actual Conditions
The actual experiences of the Britisl
instructors, many of whom were in th'
first tanks used iii the war. have beer
reproduced in the most minute detai'
for the instruction of the Americans
Little has been left to the imagiiin
tion; the practical has been substitute)
for the theoretical. Huge shell hole
not dug out with pick and shovel bu
blasted by mines as though by the Oer
man shells, have torn up the trainlnf
Held; trenches identical with those that
mark the battlefields of Franco an
other obstructions that tanks encount
er have been built and it is over thes'
that the Americans have beeu drille'
and drilled until, in the opinion of thei
instructors, they are prepared to tak
their places on the line.
'radical problems of getting out o'
tight places have been provided, am'

has been lying "dogged" all these
months, awaiting a good opening and
the arrival of American reinforce

To Foch, tha student, philosopher sn.l
master strategist, the present battle
has been wonderful opportunity. In
the darkest hours he never was de
pressed. There never was tho slightest
bustle around hia headquarter.
One of our American generals called
there one day when the action was at
n critira) stage. After offering ssluta
tious he waa about to leave, out the
generalissimo Insisted upon hia staying
the Whole ' afternoon, during which
they discussed general matters.
On Foeh's table the whole battle is
laid out and -while his generals are
lighting oua action he is preparing an
ther. 11a eafl figure pretty closely
what Ludendorff will do in given cir
ciimstanres. The matching up of brains
between these two opposing leaders hns
become a feature of the war, now that,
the forces are about niunl, nn.l the

niekly adjusted themselves to the eon

These Indians, reared along tho
